Volex plc (AIM:VLX), the global supplier of integrated manufacturing services and power products, is pleased to announce the results of its AGM, held earlier today, at which all resolutions were duly passed on a poll.

As a consequence, Volex confirms that, further to the announcement made on 29 July 2022 in relation to the Scrip Dividend Scheme and the receipt by the Company of valid elections from certain shareholders, 377,615 new ordinary shares of 25 pence each (the "Scrip Dividend Shares") will be issued in satisfaction of such elections in respect of the final dividend for the year ended 3 April 2022.

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Scrip Dividend Shares to be admitted to AIM, with the admission date expected to be on or around 26 August 2022. On admission, the Scrip Dividend Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing ordinary shares of the Company.

The total number of votes received on each resolution put to the AGM is as follows:

Total Voting Rights

Following the issue of the Scrip Dividend Shares, the Company's total issued share capital will consist of 159,096,324 ordinary shares of 25 pence each with one voting right per share.

As the Company does not hold any shares in treasury, the total number of voting rights in the Company is also 159,096,324 and this figure of ordinary shares may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Notes

*A vote withheld is not treated as a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes cast for or against a resolution.

Resolutions 1 to 10 were ordinary resolutions, requiring a simple majority of votes cast to pass, while resolutions 11 to 13 were special resolutions, requiring at least 75% support to pass.

The total number of Volex shares in issue at 6.00 p.m. on 17 August 2022, being those eligible to be voted on at the AGM, was 158,718,709.

The full text of each of the resolutions is set out in the Notice of AGM, which is available on the Volex website ( www.volex.com ) on the "Shareholder Information" page in the Investor Relations section.
